Have a laugh on me

We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

The movies – a place where you can undo your pants and enjoy two hours of pleasure!

61 Comments

Movies are the best place to escape your miserable life reality.

For two hours, if you’re lucky, you can ignore the kids, your partner, the washing or work.

Let’s not forget – you can pig out on popcorn and frozen Coke without feeling guilty.

You can also undo your pants and let your tummy hang out and no one will see because it’s PITCH BLACK!

I totally undo my top bottom at the movies! SO SHOOT ME!

There are a few movies I love to hate – including any that feature Jim Carrey, Mike Meyers and Leslie Nielsen (RIP).

Sorry but they’re just NOT funny – well to me any how.

Then again I’m fussy about comedy – it has to be subtle, dry, like a fantastic glass of wine.

However, I am partial to one Adam Sandler movie, Happy Gilmore was a source of amusement to me for a long time.

Not just because he threw golf clubs like I do when I miss a shot (like EVERY shot).

But mainly for this scene featuring Ben Stiller:

During my flatting days, whenever someone asked me for something I would use this line!

My favourite movies don’t fit any one genre, taste or Era!

But here’s five flicks that I have seen at LEAST 10 times – I KID YOU NOT – and would watch again if you rocked up to my house with it in your hot hand!

Romeo and Juliet (1996)

Titanic (1997)

Every time I watch this movie - I cry at this scene - imagine knowing it's your time (oops here I go again) Image source

Shutter Island (2010)

I'm a total sucker for a movie that BLOWS me away - which isn't often - I can usually pick most endings! BUT NOT THIS! Image source

Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001- 2003)

Not only was this series filmed in my country of birth - I have lived in and around where it was filmed! I also LOVE the escapism that comes with this movie (okay and the perve factor)

I have many more movies I LOVE – some are kinda creepy Kill Bill, some are soppy The Notebook and others are a mixture The Hangover.

But these are five I will never tire of watching – in fact I can almost recite the actor’s lines for them!!

Do any of these movies blow your hair back? What is a movie you have watched numerous times?
Did you notice something that three of these movies all have?

Author: Have A Laugh On Me

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. Happy Gilmore was always on high rotation when I was at university and living in a dorm. It drove me CRAZY! Can not stand Adam Sandler!

    But I didn’t even realise until now that Ben Stiller was in it! Maybe it’s a gem that I just need some time and space from before I can revist and appreciate.

  2. Someone’s a Leo fan! Welcome to the club – I LOVE HIM! lololol. Baz Lurhmann’s Romeo + Juliet is one of my faves, too. I also love Pulp Fiction, Moulin Rouge, Good Will Hunting and High Fidelity. πŸ™‚

  3. Well, I’m not so big on Adam Sandler, but Ben Stiller does get some of the best lines. I love Romeo and Juliet though and yes, I could watch it 100 times and still notice new things. But more importantly, this is your best headline ever πŸ˜‰

  4. I don’t get Happy Gilmore at all (but Sandlers Opera Man is one of the funniest things ever!)

    I love the first lord of the rings and then bits of the other 2…(I will watch anything with Christopher Lee – and also listen to audio books purely because he’s reading them).

  5. Except for LOTR, we love all the same movies! Good taste πŸ˜‰

  6. I can’t do LOTR. My attention span is short and just doesn’t stretch to movies that long. Although I have seen all of the Harry Potter Movies a few times…so maybe LOTR is just not my scene.

    Thanks for linking up with us at The Lounge lovely lady!

  7. How fantastic was the final bit of Shutter Island?!!! Same, I can usually guess, but not this one.
    I remember the first time I saw that scene with Ben Stiller in Happy Gilmore, I almost choked, SO funny!
    My favourite movie of all time, and I can recite every single word is Rocky Horror Picture Show, could watch it every day. I also love Pulp Fiction and anything with Bette Midler or Stanley Tucci.
    Lately though it’s more like Hotel Transylvania and Diary of a Wimpy Kid πŸ™‚
    xx

  8. I see a Leo trend going on here, and why not he is gorjus! I liked blood diamond(?) that he was in too. I don’t think I have watched all of Sound of Music or Shutter Island all the way through, or Lord of the Rings for that matter!

    • Yes he was in Blood Diamond. I feel in love with him as a teen and have adored him ever since, he’s probably not much older than me! You HAVE to watch the Sound of Music, your kids, when older, will LOVE it x

  9. I don’t need to tell you that I could watch Xmen first class a thousand times with the sound turned down. So I wont tell you that. I beg to differ on Leslie Nielsen however. IMHO he was bloody hilarious and I felt that comedy lost a little something when he left the building.

  10. Can I guess that The Great Gatsby is high on your list of films to see?! LEO ALERT!

    I don’t like many Jim Carrey movies, but I did like Ace Ventura when it first came out, and I love Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Helps that he’s not being an over-the-top loon in it! (Just a regular loon…)

  11. Love these movies! Except for Titanic – it was ok but dragged out too long for me. I’m a horror / creepy suspense movie kind of girl. Faves include The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption & classic horror like Nightmare on Elm St. I really love Shutter Island – it’s one of those films that keeps you on the edge of your seat & so unexpected – Leo’s a bit of alright too!!

    Lately though it’s been animated movies like How to Train your Dragon, Brave & The Polar Express on repeat in this 3 year old dominated house! All good movies – but only the first 3 or 4 hundred times! πŸ™‚

  12. I am totally with you on the Sound of Music and Kill Bill. Kill Bill has to be the most hilarious movie I have ever watched. My hubby and I went through a stage where we would grab a bottle of wine, put on Kill Bill and piss ourselves until the end. This happened weekly πŸ™‚

  13. It looks like you love a good laugh! My all-time fave is Indiana Jones … have watched them all a kazillion times πŸ™‚

  14. You know I’m not a movie person but I’m going to watch one over the long weekend so I can undo my jeans and let it all hang out! ha ha

  15. I love Ben stiller, you love Leonardo by the looks of it too. I saw the great gatsby the other night – awesome, I’ve seen sound of music probably 20 times and will most likely watch it again with my darling tonight. Lord of the rings? I watch once a year. I’ve seen old dogs five times now – John travolta and robin Williams. The last time I cried laughing – it grows on u. Love that line you have featured. Mind if borrow it? Kimx

  16. Sounds like I’d best find myself a copy of Shutter Island. I don’t get to see very many movies, but I did love avatar when I saw it five years after everyone else. I’ve seen two of the three LOTR. I did it for love – or lust – or something. The boy I was seeing insisted I watch the first before we drove 1.5hrs to the next town to see the second.

  17. Leo hey? I’ve seen R&J more times than I care to remember but I do love him in What’s eating Gilbert Grape… I haven’t seen Shutter Island either. Where have I been?!

  18. I think I watched the commitments at the movies like 5 times and as for The Breakfast Club…well, I knew every line off by heart! You know, I couldn’t watch Shutter Island. Just looked too scary for me…Yes, I am a wuss!

  19. I love the Sound of Music , watche dit more than 10 times maybe.
    Leo – be still my beating heart too.

  20. Yep, The Sound Of Music. Seen a gazillion times. Which should come as a tremendous shock considering my love of cheesy music. Cutting edge, I ain’t.

  21. Oh, R + J! That film is genius. I haven’t seen Shutter Island. I don’t know why, considering it’s Leo. Thanks for the tip!

  22. Liking Leo and the classic schmaltz that is Sound of Music. These days I settle for a cinematic experience that isn’t G rated (although I must admit I’m a sucker for good disney movie)

  23. I am so happy to say that you and I could watch movies together! I also cannot stand Jim Carrey or Mike Myers at all. Though I will admit to being partial to a stupid stoner movie (think Harold and Kumar).
    Totally forgot about that scene from titanic. The one that always got me was the mother putting her kids to bed 😦

  24. I am a HUGE movie buff πŸ™‚ and will just about watch anything (within reason of course) at the moment I am dying to see The Great Gatsby but no one will come with me 😦 looks like I’m going on my own ..

  25. The Goonies is always my go-to movie πŸ™‚

  26. I am a definite Leo fan and R&J is definitely on my top 5 movie list. Also I still have the soundtrack on high rotation on my iPod!

  27. Oh my god Emily, if I didn’t lie you before I certainly do now!

    Romeo+Juliet: I saw this 7 times at the cinemas! My best friend Kylie and I were obsessed! We then went on a mission ad watched every Leo DiCaprio and Claire Danes movie ever made. And then watched R+J again and again when the DVD finally came out. Kylie had the Internet at her house, which in 1996 was a HUGE deal and we spent many hours waiting for her dial-up to download one continuous fan page (created in geo cities I’m pretty sure) that was nothing but pictures from R+J. Obsession is probably too weak a word for it!

    Titanic: saw this at the cinemas 4 times and is definitely one of those movies I can watch over and over. I love it. Had the soundtrack firmly lodged in my fancy 3 disc CD player, along with the soundtrack from R+J, volumes 1 & 2!

    The Sound of Music: something you may not know about me, but this is my all-time favourite movie. All. Time! There is no other movie I have a greater love for and have seen more (if I had to guess I would say easily over 25 viewings). I know just about every word of dialogue and every word to every song! I can’t wait till Punky is old enough (I was 6 when I fell in love with it) to watch it with me.

    Shutter Island is one movie I really want to see again. I’ve only seen it once, on a flight to New York and I really enjoyed it despite barely being able to see what was happening on the tiny screen. I thought the story was brilliant. I have seen the LOTR trilogy but really wanna see them again as they were viewed while recovering from not-just-alcohol-induced
    hangovers and as such I don’t remember a lot of them!

  28. Bit of a Leo fan there hey?! We watched Django Unchained on the weekend, must admit he was pretty good in that. Very gory though!

    Can’t see us ever going to the movies together Em – I love Mike Myers (Wayne’s World, Wayne’s World, party time, excellent… Austen Powers etc), and Jim Carrey (Liar Liar is another of my faves).
